A bit different kind of Echo Chamber -- as we actually played some rock 'n roll: that twangy, instrumental surf rock one expects to find at all great tiki bars. Then, once the martinis were well shaken, we put on some cool old school soul and R&B, and some really chill remix of Buddy Holly. We were really cookin' now, and the Tiki Bar lounge was heavy with kali smoke...so we cooled...

An unbelievable eclectic mix on tonight's program... But, first up was the incredible new release Re-Record Not Fade Away from Yesking. What a slinky, chilled musical trip with elements of trip-hop and hip-hop, and a solid dubwise foundation. On top of this we dropped the dub bomb that is Alpha Steppa + Alpha & Omega -- with the excellent The Unrelenting Forcee of Dub Dynasty. And up 3rd on the bill, the brand new John Brown's Body album Kings and Queens (on Easy Star). Wow...and then more...

To culminate Black History Month, the Echo Chamber presented "A Short History of Reggae - from Jamaica to the World". We started things off with Etana’s homage to "Reggae"; then a short mento track (the Jamaican equivalent to calypso); and then right into the classic "Oh Carolina" by the Folkes Brothers, and produced by the great Prince Buster; followed by a Nyahbingi classic from Count Ossie. Now that the stage was set, we moved headlong into some great ska,...
